Virgin Atlantic has made public for the first time the much-awaited Airbus A330neo, which is intended to give each and every passenger a luxurious, customized experience.
The Upper-Class cabin of the airline features a brand-new seat, an updated version of its iconic communal area, and the debut of The Retreat Suite, the largest suite in Virgin Atlantic’s history.
There will be more methods than ever for passengers to stay connected throughout the aircraft. Travelers in Premium and Upper Class may benefit from revolutionary in-seat wireless charging, while passengers in every cabin can take advantage of more USB ports, entertainment systems with Bluetooth capabilities, and the airline’s fastest Wi-Fi ever.
Virgin Atlantic reaffirmed its commitment to operating the cleanest, greenest fleet in the sky in 2019 by being the first airline in the UK to place a firm order for up to 16 Airbus A330neos.
The airline operates a fleet with an average aircraft age of just under seven years and 68 percent next-generation aircraft thanks to a multi-billion dollar investment in fleet transformation over the previous ten years. By the start of 2027, this rises to 100 percent next generation.
In order to save fuel and cut pollution, Virgin Atlantic’s planes are outfitted with the most effective engines and cutting-edge technologies. So far, this has resulted in a 20% reduction in fleet carbon emissions.
We’ll reduce carbon emissions by another 10% over the ensuing ten years. The A330-900 Neos will significantly reduce airport noise by 50% and are engineered to be 11% more fuel and carbon efficient than the A330-300 they are directly replacing.
Early in October, Virgin Atlantic’s A330neo is anticipated to take off on its inaugural customer flight to Boston. The sale of tickets will start later this month. Three aircraft will be delivered to the airline starting in September 2022, with the remaining deliveries occurring between 2023 and 2026.
